Calendar of Events

Kids History Day offers opportunity to explore local history


The Marathon County Historical Society invites upper-elementary and middle school-age children to register for Kids History Day. This free, fun activity day will be Thursday, August 15, 2019, from 10 am to 2 pm, at the Woodson History Center, 410 McIndoe St., Wausau.


Children ages 8 and older will have fun exploring what life was like in Marathon County more than a century ago. Children will be able to handle artifacts that would have been used during that time, play old-fashioned games, and do a craft project.


There is no registration fee. Participants are asked to bring their own bag lunch. Lemonade, water, and a snack will be provided.


For more information or to register your child(ren), please call the Marathon County Historical Society at 715-842-5750 or download the permission form and send it in.
